Maryland Reports

Here are links to the three reports written for the Maryland Commission for Men’s Health in 2010.

Domestic Violence and Male Victims

Men, Boys, and Suicide

Men’s Health

There is a back story to these reports that will be published in Janice Fiamingo’s book later this year.  It’s a tale of bureaucratic misandry that helps us see the prevalence of the gynocentric mindset that prevails within our institutions.

 

  • I’d love to write a story for your website about how the standards about ‘sexual intimidation’ leave a lot of men lonely, timid, afraid and sad.

    Did anything come of this?

  • Thanks for asking. Yes and no. The reports were filed and sent to the governor and a host of other politicians and are available as a resource to the state legislators but they have been largely ignored. The more interesting story is that they did not get posted for at least a year after they were written. The health dept submarined all of those written by myself and tried to deep six them. They really didn’t want them to come to light I think largely due to the men’s health report that made them look suspect. There were four reports that our commission approved for submission at our final meeting and only one was submitted (the one not written my me lol) even though the support staff had been given explicit instructions on more than one occasion to send in all four. It took me a year to keep after them and finally get them submitted. Just another indicator of the massive gynocentric bias we face in govt, media, academia, and of course in the mental health system. Someday I should write up that experience.

  • My god, it’s long ago I proposed writing an article! Maybe I’d better start, the situation only worsened, and for one reason or another feminists talk a lot more about sexuality than their critics.
